For this logo, think simple yet elegant/sophisticated. But not flowery or fancy. A simple treatment of my initials (TH) is my primary interest. Something small but eye-catching that can be used as a "favicon" for my Web site, and in printed materials such as biz cards, brochures, letterhead, etc. It would also be nice if the treated initials can be worked into a logo containing my entire name (Tim Huddleston), but that isn't necessary. If the logo must stand alone, that's fine.
Also, please avoid a "techie" look (no "computer-ish" fonts). Although my background is largely in tech publishing, I'm trying to reshape my image to appeal to a broad range of publishers.
My key color choices are black (R, 0; G, 0; B, 0) and a dark red (R, 200; G, 0; B, 0).
File format requirements are:
Transparent GIF, which can be placed over a colored background so the background will show through.
The images must be resizable an retain their resolution upon resizing. No EPS, TIF, or Targa-type files, please.
And remember: sophisticated, but not fancy or flowery.
